Photographer's guide to New York City

1.2 trillion photos are taken each year, many of them in New York City. Check out our photographer's guide to the city below to get most out of your vacation snaps or contact LOCALIKE New York, if you want to book a guided photo-safari through NYC.

Exchange Place Waterfront, Jersey City
The best pictures of Manhattan can be taken from across the river in either Brooklyn or New Jersey. The latter tends not to be overcrowded and its views—particularly of One World Trade Center (OWT)—are unparalleled.

Lower Manhattan
For a more unseen view of the OWT building, head over to the corner of Fulton & Nassau Sts where the stunning skyscraper lines up with the urban canyon for the perfect symbiosis of street life and architecture.

Street Art 
It's a bit of a trip but the mural series in Bushwick, Brooklyn is a fantastic destination. Start your hunt for the most colorful street art photo at St Nicholas Ave & Troutman St and let the murals guide you from there.
